minnesota governor tim pa-- pa-- tim pawlenty. in addition to governor snoozy, there's george w. bush's budget director, rob portman, and then what the "times" refers to as the two dark horse choices, paul ryan, the guy who became nationally famous when he suggested taking away medicare from old people and giving them coupons instead, and also louisiana governor bobby jindal. yesterday, he joins bobby jindal in louisiana for fund-raisers. the beltway press describing him as buzzed about as one of romney's most visible supporters and as a vp short lister. >> i'm bobby jindal, governor of louisiana. >> according to the washington post, bobby jindal's stock is on the rise. the paper extolling the many conservative virtues that make him a possible vice presidential choice, like for example, criticizing president obama. republican voters love that. and fighting with democrats on tv. that's a must. also, he is not old. mossel tav. and there's the rolling back of medical care for the poor and uninsured in his state. maybe that could cancel out romney care in massachusetts? in fact, it would
presidential election, george h.w. bush released 14 years of his tax returns going back to 1973. there's no exact number of years that is the standard. but when mitt romney says the president is that you don't have to release much in the way of tax returns, just a couple years will do it, that's not true. the obama campaign released this chart this week showing how many years worth of tax returns the last four presidents released as they campaigned for office. they're putting this out because they think mr. romney has been wrong when he asserted he's following precedent. he released eight years. george w. bush released ten. clinton released 12 years. poppy bush released 14 years. then they added on another guy, the last blue column, that is george romney, who is just a candidate for president. he of course never became president, but he is mitt romney's dad. so what's normal in presidential politics is to release many years of your tax returns. the romney campaign if they cont wanted to could come back and say all those people who became president and my dad released more than five yea
the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was one moment where mitt romney delivered an actual policy position. the reception, that was not very warm. >> if our goal is jobs, we have to stop spending over a trillion dollars more than we take in every year. and so to do that, i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obamacare, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boos ] >> 14 seconds. that's how long mitt romney was booed for saying he will repeal obamacare. reporters on the scene said the reaction was stunning. >> i have not heard that kind of sustained booing for mitt romney during the course of this campaign up until what happen today at the naacp. i don't think it really is sort of overstating it. this was perhaps one of the most negative reactions mitt romney has had in the course of his 2012 presidential campaign. >> after the speech, romney said he expected to be booed by the crowd. he told fox news the crowd was with him more than they were against him.
. former president george w. bush resurfaces to talk about awesomeness? mitt romney and swamps. details next. last season was the gulf's best tourism season in years. in florida we had more suntans... in alabama we had more beautiful blooms... in mississippi we had more good times... in louisiana we had more fun on the water. last season we broke all kinds of records on the gulf. this year we are out to do even better... and now is a great time to start. our beatches are even more relaxing... the fishing's great. so pick your favorite spot on the gulf... and come on down. brought to you by bp and all of us who call the gulf home. the calcium they take because they don't take it with food. switch to citracal maximum plus d. it's the only calcium supplement that can be taken with or without food. that's why my doctor recommends citracal maximum. it's all about absorption. that[ that's a good thing,mends eligible for micare? but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medal expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured b
forward as a nation and not go back to the policies of george w. bush which brought about the whole economic crisis. >> let me ask about the tax cuts expiring. my position in the senate democrats is the gop pledge, obviously not to vote to raise taxes, can be gotten around by letting the tax cuts expire on january 1st and then vote on a tax cut for those who make less than 2$250,000 a year. let me play for you what minority leader mitch mcconnell said. >> democrats in congress are now saying that they would rather see taxes go up on every american at the end of the year than let about 1 million businesses keep what they earn now. >> is he right and where do you see showdown going? >> no, he is not right. we will have a vote next week. it will give 100% of the people a tax break on the first $250,000 of income. beyond that, if you are over that, your income over that is taxed at the bill clinton rates. those rates were fair and just. those rates led us to 23 million jobs created and a surplus instead of deficits. mitch mcconnell should join hands with us. let's get it done. that mean
politics, george w. bush giving his colorful reflection on his time in office. quote, i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not going back. >> eight years was awesome. i was famous and powerful, but i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i don't want to undermine our president or whoever is president. and a former president can do that. i think it's bad for the presidency itself. >> the former president also said, quote, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well, but he can do well would you tell me. annou medicare and social security, you've earned the right to know. ♪ ...so what does it mean for you and your family? [ female announcer ] you've earned the facts. ♪ washington may not like straight talk, but i do. [ female announcer ] and you've earned a say. get the facts and make your voice heard on medicare and social security at earnedasay.org. hey. hey eddie. i brought your stuff. you don't have to do this. yes i do. i want you to keep this. it'd be weird. take care. you too. [ sighs ] so how did it go? he's upset. [ male announcer ] spend less time at gas stati
you think that it's not effective for the obama camp to keep blaming george w. bush and what they inherited? >> i wouldn't blame president bush but i would continue to point out i said earlier, andrea, it's good for people to remember that we were losing 750,000 jobs a month when the president took over. that's what he's inherited. though 84,000 may not sound like much in terms of a gain, it's a whole lot better than losing 750,000. i think he's doing the right thing there. he's also doing the right thing in stressing his jobs bill. his jobs bill contained 11 separate components, almost all of which republicans had supported in the past, and they essentially stonewalled him and stopped any progress from things that were like $50 billion of spending on infrastructure we know creates well-paying jobs on the construction sites and back in our factories, and it's hard to understand why they would obstruct that type o initiative. >> what about the tax cuts? michael steele, do you think the republicans really have a great talking point when they talk about tax cuts for millionaires
george w. bush did in 2004 in trying to define john kerry. they are doing it on certificate rides in a way we've not seen before with the amount of money and ground game behind it. they've made that choice. whether it works or not we have four months to see. it's totally different. megyn: why do they care about iowa's six electoral votes with all due respect. >> if he can put together the traditional republican states in this election the must win ohio and florida and thanks to karl rove plus one, one more, then mitt romney wins and iowa has got enough. megyn: you're seeing the numbers there is a piece out of the washington times from yesterday or today talking about how president obama is down with young voters, he's down with black voters, he's down with low-income white voters, he's down with post graduate white women and so all of these sort of, you know, erosions in his support are leading to a sense of concern about states that he did win handily the last time around. chris stirewalt thank you, sir. megyn: more for you now on why iowa matters so much for the president. his c
, well i did it for ford in '76, but then again for george w. bush in 2000. i had a couple calls from prominent politicians who would say it would help me in my race back home if i was on the list. you are on the list. then somebody could leak the fact that they were on the list. but that was the big list. it was easy to get on the big list. the tough part is the small list. the one that is really under active consideration. and the test to get on the small list has to be is this person capable of being president of the united states. that's usually a very, very short list. >> what about the other considerations? can you bring a state? can you -- reach out to a specific demographic, woman, hispanic? >> those are important issues. but they should never be allowed to override the first proposition. and i think that, that was one of the problems mccain had. i like governor palin. i have met her the i know her. she is an attractive candidate. but based on her background she had only been governor for two years. i don't think she passed that test. >> being ready? >> being ready to take ove
. but had's making the outreach. george w. bush did it as a candidate but then went several years without showing up at the naacp as president. >> yes, he did. i remember. he went in 2000 and never appeared again. >> yeah. i think -- i at tend he may have appeared at the naacp group. yeah, you are right. basically, though, a lot of antipathy built up over the years because of that. romney is making the outreach. he gets points for that. he also is running against the first black president. and so the fact he shows up as important. he made good points. i thought the idea of school choice is a great issue to go after the black vote with because democrats are tied to the futures union, opposed to anything involved in choice. rank and file, black folks like it. the problem was, you know, once again, he had the words but not the music. i think -- you know. in that way he -- he didn't win a lot of black votes today. >> part of romney's problem is, one, he's mitt romney. also, he's the presumptive nominee of a party that by generally speaking has either ignored african-americans or scapegoated a
that will george w. bush got in the past. you're seeing that in some of the analysis that conservatives are giving of the romney campaign. we're being far more honest about romney than we were about bush. if you were the romney campaign, i'd say i will release my paper trail when the president relations his. where is his college transcripts? where is all the transparency what he did before he was in the illinois state sneempl are you kidding me. >>> margie, you believe that that is a fair equation here on one breath, you say that governor romney needs to be more transpare transparent. he is running for the highest office in is this country. the american people need to know more about his tax returns and you are saying this. aim not saying this. this is what you're saying but you want to flip the corner and then bring up the president's college transcript. that's your -- >> the reason -- i don't really. >> those things are equal here? >> the reason why is because i frankly don't trust -- this whole thing about his tax returns i think for democrats is a red herring. this is about transparent say. th
for re-election. and there was also then-governor george w. bush, his hands touching the wall. other famous faces elizabeth taylor, richard burton in 1975. and in 2000, ailing pope john paul ii made an historic trip, attempting to build a stronger relationship with catholics and jews, we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood to the people. two more prayers added with quiet wishes from america. mr. and mrs. romney, writing the prayers together, adding to so many powerful moments at the western wall. david muir, abc news, jerusalem. >> and, again this is just about halfway through his international tour. he said, he said yesterday, that preventing iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities that is going to be his highest national security priority. >> right. and david, part of the interview, pressed him, said your strategy in terms of iran, israel doesn't seem too different from how the obama administration handed it. we will see if there is a strict difference here. some have been critical saying, israel, american tensions have never been worse than right now. so he is trying
actually, i don't think george w. bush cares all that butch this, but i think it has helped his post presidential image that he has stayed behind the scenes. he's not been critical in any way, shape, or form of barack obama and not tried to draw attention to himself. this is someone who spent eight very controversial years in office, left office quite unpopular. the way he has handled himself since leaving office, he has done himself some political good. i don't think that's why he did it or that he cares all that much. >> then the question is what role will he play, if any in, tampa and what role his father might play. chris, thank you so much. we'll you see you tomorrow from washington. follow the show online and on twitter @mitchell reports. my friend tamron hall has a look what's next. >> following a lot of big news. hour. rush limbaugh claims the romney campaign is following his strategy and points to the comments made by governor john sununu saying he needs to learn how to be an american. we're waiting to hear what governor romney has to say as he holds a town hall in ohio. >>>
is going to be in ohio. tomorrow the president starts a two-day tour in florida. george w. bush talking about the politics, the mudslinging and how he feels now. this was at the hoover institution at stanford. >> pretty unattractive metaphor. i said i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm, you know, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. but you know, he can do well without me. >> and he also made the point as he has before that he believes that you should not get in the way of the current kin habtant of the oval office. >> he's kept to that, andrea, i would say. he really has kept an incredibly low profile since leaving office. one think i say about george bush, we think of the eight years he was president, six years as governor before that. this is somebody involved in politics basically his whole life. his father obviously our president of the united states, he was deeply involved in the 1988 presidential campaign. so he's been doing it for a long time. you can kind of understand why he's interested in it fr
. remember, george w. bush did not attend the naacp for some time because he knew he would get that kind of a reception. >> we're going to have more on what happened in houston today later this hour. gloria, thanks very much. >> sure. >> there's also sobering news about a threat to the united states military and to israel. standby for details of a newly declassified pentagon report warning that iran's missiles are getting deadlier. also, a hazard of summer thunderstorms every airline passenger needs to be aware of. and a church school forcing little kids to beg for money. cnn's cameras are there. great shot. how did the nba become the hottest league on the planet? by building on the cisco intelligent network they're able to serve up live video, and instant replays, creating fans from berlin to beijing. what can we help you build? nice shot kid. the nba around the world built by the only company that could. cisco. energy is being produced to power our lives. while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providi
speech writer for president george w. bush and julie ro begin sky, former adviser to new jersey senator frank i lautenberg and -- frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. this is not the first time we've seen joe biden deliver the message that the other guy, you know, romney, they just don't get you, or the republicans, they don't get the real working class, middle class americans. they don't understand them. this is all in the context of arguing for a tax hike on wealthier americans, marc, and he talked about that wealthy people are just as patriotic as poor folks, they're just as deem as middle class folks, but no one asks them to do anything and that they need to understand better the concept of shared responsibility. your thoughts? [laughter] >> well, i think, look, i think mitt romney has given them plenty of opportunities to make this kind of of attack from the swiss bank accounts in the cayman islands to the $10,000 bet with rick perry and all the rest. but let's not -- let's remember, barack obama is the guy who in 2008 said ha working class americans were bitter and were cl
be like george w. bush having only been up 6 points in alabama over john kerry in 2004. that is too close. if you're an incumbent president and democrat you need to be killing in michigan, it needs to be a total wipe out for you. you should not have to ror reabout spending resources there. in the i70 and north corridor going out from pennsylvania all the way out to iowa up into wisconsin, michigan, those states he's got big problems. democrats had huge problems there in 2010 and president obama has the worst numbers among white working class voters who are maybe as much as 40% of the election threa electorate since walter mondale. megyn: if bill clinton were running they'd say, there i my guy. i love bill clinton, the boy from hope. if they don't connect with president obama is bill clinton getting up there andt me, he's o it? >> i tell you what he's going to say. he's pretty good, he's not as good as i was, but he's pretty good, he's pretty good. megyn: there is risk of that with president clinton, there is very real risk of that. >> that's what he does. you remember in the springtime wh
of the george w. bush administration. has declared he is china's door mat. in a way no modern administration has been, mitt romney is calling him a door mat. he likes to make a big deal out of saying he as president would be more confrontational. mr. romney wrote on op ed saying he would take aggressive action against the second largest economy in the world. so aggressive he would start a war against the two greatest economies on earth. his plans were stated as a blunder. it was described as mr. romney's hulk policy. romney smash china. but for all mr. romney is turning green and shredding his shirts with biceps, when it comes to making real decisions about countries in the market place, mr. romney has not been all that big in confrontation in the real world. in his book no apology, president bush's design to stand up against china had done more harm than good. he called president obama's defense of american tire companies bad for the nation. so this is a test. this is an administration that even if you like what they have done has been not that great at chest bumping. rightly or wrongly, it's j
the campaign called george w. bush un-american and it was wrong then and it's wrong now for governor sununu to suggest exactly the same thing about barack obama. this is the president of the united states, the leader of the free world, we request have a civilized discourse saying that obama is not american, is completely wrong. >> the vast majority of republicans are not of the ilk that would question the president's americanism or patriotism or anything along those lines, i believe he's a country loving patriotic american, i just think he happens to be wrong, i think his policies have failed. the vast majority of americans thinks that the country is going in the wrong direction. that's what it should be about, not about missteps and quotes that are taken out of context, it should be about those fundamental issues and where this country is going. >> those polls still show governor romney leading with the -- at least in your opinion he is not handling in the right way, but with that said, i want to play this new ad from the romney campaign featuring of all people hillary clinton, she's taken
these numbers and phenomenon? >> not really. he does well among democrats just like george w. bush did among republicans but he's long since lost the republicans. >> scott. thank you very much. >>> thank you. >>> moving jobs out as high taxes move in. why lawmakers in our nation's capital should pay close attention to what's going on in the big apple. . with better car replacement, if your car is totaled, we give you the mone for a car one model year newer. liberty mutual auto insurance. >> neil: you think high taxes don't drive away jobs? look what's happening to thousands of wall street jobs. they're leaving new york fast. tom is a c.e.o. just down on wall street and says lawmakers everywhere better learn. you reported this before, seen it firsthand, that a lot of midlevel type positions are losing the city. >> this is a less to washington state and local governments. people out there won't spend money they don't have to stay in a state that costs too much and the burden is on the company of staying if business or going out of business so they go to low-cost areas where they can afford to
>>megyn: george w. bush gave an interview that some perceive as a veiled shot at former president bill clinton? i will tweet it now. what do you think? follow me on twitter. thank you for watching. here is ship smith. >>shepard: the news begins anew. on "studio b," delta passengers four separate flights, found inch long needles in sand wins they served not air. one person is reportedly hurt. the f.b.i. is on the case. >> the former vice president cheney back in the nation's capitol today reportedly to rally the g.o.p. against automatic defense cuts although republicans agreed to the cuts. and cops in iowa are now draining a lake in the search for two cousins, missing since friday. the family joined us, live, all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b" today. >> but, first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, police in alabama say they have the man they suspect of turning a crowded college bar into a bloody and chaotic mess. according to the cops, off the university alabama campus the gunman fired a military-style assault rifle into the bar through a window
breaks for people making over $250,000 a year. president george w bush lowered then during his eight years in office was the lowest net since world war ii but when president clinton was in office job creation during that period was the highest since world war ii. the highest at 23 million. deputy press secretary says that the president's balanced approach fits with the current president's approach to grow the economy and deal with the different. >> president clinton, because of his record on these issues, because he shares president obama's view, that the best policy is to put in place the economic policies that invest in the middle class, that grow our economy from the middle, out. >>reporter: some say president obama is running on president clinton's economy. >>shepard: you are required to have no memory in politics but those who do, remember the two families, man alive, this we beat the heck out of each other. how did we get here? >>reporter: there are risks, but you can, obviously, look forward to the potential hillary clinton candidacy in 2016 and say that president clinton woul
said is he plans to return to the same policies that george w. bush advanced during his eight years that were one of the most stagnant players. drive trillion that will go to the top 1%. these are the trickle down philosophies that didn't get us anywhere and didn't promise much for the future. >> to get us off of the unemployment. >> that are would be nice. >> we were showing the viewers on that last full screen, we have been oscillating the range and if we expect that same space for the next few months, around 8%, does it make things easier for mitt romney, things are simply not working. >> for does and to a certain extent this is the responsibility of the obama campaign. he's in ohio and ohio's unemployment rate is well under the national average in the six range. >> 7.3. >> 7.3, okay. in virginia it's way down in the 5.5% elf range or something. there places where the policies made a huge impact. in my district we add 3,000 new jobs at the ford facilities this year. we have a general electric appliance. more than 1,000 new jobs. there places where selectively the economy is bette
what the president had to say. >> i put this up to george w. bush who was asked after four years if he had made any mistakes yet and he said i can't think of any. >> i give him credit, it makes me like him more. but you don't want to show, especially in this campaign, is any form of weakness or self-doubt. >> what do you think, richard, he's right there. >> the question about the communication about the american story is telling his story, what kind of a president was he going to be? was he the insider making deals, or was he the outsider or the reformer and i think they got the balance wrong. he could have talked more about the kinds of reforms that he wants to do in his second term, that he didn't do in his first term. he said it was a mission, maybe half a mission. maybe you don't want to show weakness, but you've got to show honesty and one of the strengths he had in 2008 was he seemed to be answer the question. >> if you want to say there is a problem in the message, look at the highlights in this poll who would do the best job of improving the economy, obama was 48%. >> it's thos
george w. bush, i'm the daughter of liberian immigrants. liberian immigrants had a deferred action program that worked very well for many years. there is even a song out where liberian immigrants thank george w. bush, and that being one of those reasons. but i think we have to be, you know, really specific about the community we're talking about, these young people who are future scientists, doctors, lawyers, contributing to american society, aspiring citizens. rick: understood. >> and prioritize the prosecutions. martha: let me just say i think it's very important to focus on who we're talking about. and there are very, very many worthy individuals, and that's who the program is designed for. i think it's great that the worthy individuals could qualify for some relief. the concern is that there could be an individual who is 28 years old at the prime recruiting age for al-qaida who lies to the government, said he's been in the country since he's 7 years old and that individual just by saying he went to high school is now eligible to work in the united states. we've seen how the mex
